SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A San Jose elementary school principal is facing a misdemeanor charge after authorities say she failed to report to police that a teacher may have sexually molested a girl in her school.
Santa Clara County prosecutors say they charged Lyn Vijayendran with failure to report an allegation that a teacher at O.B. Whaley Elementary School had molested a second-grade girl.
Deputy District Attorney Alison Filo says the charge, filed Tuesday, comes after Vijayendran was told last October of the possible molestation, but that she had determined through her own investigation that no crime had been committed.
Filo says police later found four more girls at the school that were believed to have been molested.
Vijayendran's attorney, Eric Geffon, says he is confident his client will be cleared of the charge.
